$25 Autism Awareness Prepaid Visa Debit Card Contest

As autism has become more prevalent, autism awareness has become a mainstream venture. Now you can help spread the important message of autism awareness with an autism-themed prepaid Visa debit card from Card.com.

Today I’m kicking off a contest to win a $25 pre-loaded Autism Awareness Visa debit card. If you’re not familiar with how a prepaid debit card works, it is really quite simple. The debit card can be used just like a standard debit card wherever Visa is accepted.

Since this card will come pre-loaded with $25, there is no need to associate the card with your bank or PayPal account or wire funds to load onto the card. Once you receive the card you can spend it anywhere you’d use a Visa card. However, you’ll be spreading the autism awareness message as you shop.

Entering is simple – just use the convenient Rafflecopter entry form below; please note the contest is open to U.S.-based entrants aged 18+. The contest will close at midnight on July 9, 2013 and the winner will be announced shortly thereafter.

Note: I did not receive compensation for this post and Card.com is providing the $25 debit card to the winner.
